I got the chance to talk to Madison Macgregor, who plays Cassandra on Backstage . I got to talk to her about everything from her journey with Cystic Fibrosis to what its like behind the scenes of Backstage. So lets jump into this.
1) what is it like living with Cycstic Fibrosis?
she has Mild Cystic Fibrosis, she does physiotherapy 2 times a day.
2) Has she worked for any organizations for her Cystic fibrosis?
She became a spokes person for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation when she was younger.
3) what is your goal for TRIBEZ?
To have TRIBEZ as a program in schools.
(if you dont know what TRIBEZ is here is a link to the website http://www.tribezthemovement.com/ )
4) what is your advice to people who have health conditions
Having a health condition is a apart of who your are, have a positive attitude about it and find a passion that will take your mind off of it and do that.
5) You play Cassandra on Backstage, are you similar to her in any way?
At that point in time, I was like her in the way I thought dance was everything, it was eat, breathe and sleep dance. I also wanna see my friends succeed like she does.
That was a pretty simple interview with her, we talked about nerdy stuff like books and how film works, and I also told her about a project I’m working on. 😉
